New downtown stations? Can't come soon enough!

Did you guys read the news?

Embarcadero and Montgomery stations are on track for a $900 million expansion, complete with new tunnels, elevators and extra platforms to boost rider capacity.  That's great news considering almost daily, around 5:15pm, the platforms are so crowded that the passenger lines have to wind around in circles, causing a back-up at the bottom of the escalator as people pour into the station.  I've seen people trip and fall due to the back-up since they have no where to step when the escalators come to an end.

What do you think about this upgrade?

Civic Center needs an upgrade more than any other station in downtown SF.

And ALL BART stations need an upgrade to prevent fare evasion. The gates are too low and the emergency exit alarms are never turned on so people fare evade like mad.
